Books, Greek

November 8, 2007

Wrapped up Mansfield Park the other night. I found it easy to tell that it was written later in her career – the whole tone seemed a little darker, the wit sharper. I’ve detoured into detoured into Tears of the Giraffe, which is the second book in the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series by Alexander McCall Smith. After this, it’ll be….well…I’m not exactly sure what yet. It’ll be something.

In the interim, we’re barreling back to Atlanta for the weekend in order that we might attend a baptism. The week after that finds us venturing to Maryland for Thanksgiving week. Beyond that, everything turns to haze. I’ve been peeking at craigslist to see what used aquarium setups are going for, and it looks like that might be the ticket for the paludarium project. Many folks are dumping loads of gear for pennies on the dollar.

Lastly, here’s a nifty resource I came across the other: Elpenor’s Home of the Greek World, which has every needful thing for a would-be Hellenist.
